3:34: I was at Night #1's show and saw one of the members of Real Estate there. Did not ask him if they were playing one of these, but take from that what you will.

Real Estate is not playing any of these shows, rumors and presence in the audience aside.

They didnt sound that good at all.

I thought the energy level was a wee bit off last night - maybe because it was a (slightly) subdued set list, and of course Ira in a chair didn't help. Though he had plenty of passion and energy; wasn't the same as usual. (Not complaining, just saying!) Mac brought some great guitar punch, and the show overall was as completely satisfying as a YLT Hannukah show always is.

But it wasn't quite as energetic as in years past, I thought.

come another night...they each stand alone - never a bad show by any means.

Neil Innes is from the BONZO DOG BAND. Jeez, the Rutles was a lark done much later. The fucking Bonzo Dog Band is legendary.
